Vendor Information for Christmas Gift Shows

To allow for the greatest number of participants, each individual (or group) may book space for one day only.

Submitting a registration form does not guarantee space in either show. Confirmations are sent beginning in September. If the show is full when your registration form is received, you will be contacted via phone or email to be put on the waiting list.

Vendors that submitted registrations after the shows have reached maximum capacity will be notified that they have been added to the waiting list.

Email civiccentercraftshow(at)gmail.com for additional information.
